A few months ago, Logitech released beta versions of its Ultimate Ears companion apps for the BOOM 2 and MEGABOOM on the Play Store. The key difference between the betas and their stable cousins was the ability to integrate with Amazon Alexa. The stable apps have now been updated to include the same functionality. Read More
Here at AP, we're quite fond of Ultimate Ears' MEGABOOM Bluetooth speaker. In our review of it from back in 2015, we found that it was tough, sounded great, and had a nice companion app. The only major sticking point - its MSRP of $299.99 (which it still retails for, by the way) makes it pretty pricey for a Bluetooth speaker. However, Best Buy is currently selling refurbished units of the MEGABOOM for just $129.99 a pop, making it a much more enticing value. Read More
Logitech's speaker brand, Ultimate Ears, includes the UE Boom and UE Megaboom speakers. They have mobile apps available, allowing you to connect multiple speakers together, change the EQ settings, and more. Now Logitech has released beta versions of the UE Boom and Megaboom apps, with the first new feature being Alexa support. Read More
Smartphones have never produced particularly good sound through their speakers. Sure, phones like the older HTC Ones, the Nexus 6 and 6P, and the Axon 7 have dual front-facing ones, but none of those are any match for a true, dedicated speaker. Even the JBL Moto Mod for the Moto Z line isn't all that great for its price and size. Now, though, you can get a highly-rated and highly portable Bluetooth speaker in the form of the UE ROLL 2 for just $49.99 on Amazon. Read More
When I get a new speaker in the mail to test, one of my go-to devices for comparison is the UE Boom 2. Looks, features, sound – this speaker checks off all the boxes. Today, it even checks the box next to great price. Right now you can pick one up at Verizon for just $99, which is half the normal retail price and a full $30 less than the discounted price that everyone else is offering, including T-Mobile (better get on that Mr. Legere, can't let big red beat ya, it'll ruin your sterling reputation).
What makes this deal even sweeter is that the discount isn't restricted to just one color combination as is often the case with killer sales. Read More
What's waterproof, great sounding, affordably priced, and shaped like a flying saucer? The UE Roll Bluetooth speaker, which is currently on sale at BestBuy for $45, the lowest price I've seen for it yet.
The Roll is an awesome little device, with a surprising amount of punch for its size and a form factor that makes it easy to carry in a backpack or purse. I reviewed the Roll 2 earlier this year and was very impressed. It's one of my go-to speakers any time I travel due to its impressive sound, portability, and durability.
The model on sale today is the first gen Roll, but it's nearly the same device as the Roll 2. Read More
There are a ton of Bluetooth speakers on the market these days, but it's hard to find one as well-rounded as Logitech's Ultimate Ears (UE) Boom 2. Not only does it look nice, but it also sounds great, is water resistant, and has a very long wireless range. Now, the price is awesome too. For just $149.99, you can pick one of these bad boys up from Amazon in any color you'd like. Read More
With Bluetooth speakers so common these days, it is pretty easy to find one that fits in almost every price bracket. One of the more popular ones that I see around my hometown is the UE Roll line, due in no small part to its portability and water resistance (Colorado folks like to go outside, what can I say). The Roll 2 brought some improvements, including a longer range and louder output than its predecessor, but it maintained the utter simplicity that makes this speaker iconic. Coupled with the UE Roll app, you can set up an alarm, adjust EQ settings, remotely power on the device, and connect up to three phones to it. Read More
The UE ROLL was one of the most interesting new Bluetooth speakers launched last year. With a waterproof (IPX7), disc-shaped body, and an attached bungee cord, the ROLL was marketed as a perfect companion for any adventure, rain or shine. Cam was a big fan of the device and had almost no complaints in his review.
Ultimate Ears is back at it again this year with an update to the original ROLL. It's called the UE ROLL 2 ($99), and as you might expect, it's even better. Read More
UE's smallest speaker, the ROLL, is 50 percent off right now at Best Buy and Amazon, dropping the price to $50. It packs impressive sound for its diminutive size and boasts 9 hours of battery life, a 65 foot Bluetooth Range, and an IPX7 rated waterproof body. Plus it has a marine-grade bungee cord attached to it that you can use to strap it to things. Gotta love a bungee cord.
Only the red and purple color options are available to ship at Best Buy, though more colors may be available for pickup at your local store. Read More
